It's Groundhog Day, and predictions are rolling in from rodents across the country.
In Lancaster County, Octoraro Orphie in Quarryville and Mount Joy Minnie both predicted six more weeks of winter.
Mount Joy Chamber of Commerce coordinator Kerry Meyers reported that about 60 people braved 4-degree weather to hear handler Nancy Shonk read Mount Joy Minnie's Groundhog Day Proclamation.
VOTE: Which groundhog's prediction do you trust the most?
"Unfortunately Minnie saw her shadow, so she has predicted six more weeks of winter," she said. "The crowd was not very happy, but many did stick around to have their photo taken with Minnie."
William Forrey, who holds the position of “Orphie’s Lip” within the Slumbering Groundhog Lodge in Quarryville, said several hundred people turned out for the festivities there.
"He saw his shadow, so it’s six more weeks of winter," Forrey said of Orphie.
Of the atmosphere, he said, "It's nice; there's no wind, there’s bright sunshine, snow on the ground: just an exhilarating morning here at the chateau at White Rock."

Happy Groundhog Day! #Punxsutawney Phil did NOT see his shadow, predicting an early spring. The last time he didn't see his shadow was in 2016, and his prediction was right where Feb and March's temperatures were above average. Will he be right this year???? pic.twitter.com/Kz4AvtGye9— NWS Pittsburgh (@NWSPittsburgh) February 2, 2019
